Microsoft Email: Public Seminar in Denver with Laura Stack

Please make plans to join me for a public seminar in Denver on November 3 on “Advanced Outlook Tips and Tricks: Discover Little-Known Techniques for Managing Your Workflow.”


 Are you buried by hundreds (or thousands!) of email messages and spend hours every day in your inbox? If you have a hard time keeping up with your email, attend this critical half day of training with me. I’m a Microsoft Certified Application Specialist (MCAS) in Outlook 2003 and 2007. I will demonstrate ADVANCED Outlook methods with my actual Outlook software and an LCD projector. This is not simple computer training—it is workflow processing—where you’ll learn to use Outlook to get more work done and increase your performance. Even Outlook “power users” will be amazed by how much they learn.

NOTE: To reduce frustration for all, please do NOT attend if you don’t consider yourself an intermediate/advanced user. Laura moves quickly; you might be seriously lost if you’re a beginner. We will not learn to create folders, schedule meetings, create email, or do any task that is considered a beginner-level skill.

Sample Advanced Outlook Workshop Objectives:
• Turn off the global email notification options.
• Play a sound when an “important” person emails you.
• Create signatures to use as templates for common replies.
• Use customized Outlook form templates for letters.
• Use Search Folders as permanent Find searches.
• Take a poll and tally group responses.
• Add groups and shortcuts in the folder list.
• Create new floating toolbars.
• Add your own personalized menu of favorite commands.
• Set a reminder on an email for someone else (babysitting).
• Set an email flag with a date follow up and a pop-up reminder box.
• Automatically forward messages to a distribution list.
• Send a previously Sent Item as an attachment to prove you sent it.
• Use Sent Items to set a reminder to follow up with someone.
• Schedule a recurring or regenerating task (what’s the difference?).
• Remove completed tasks from the TaskPad (no strikeout).
• Capture an email as a task on the TaskPad.
• Assign a Task to someone else and track through completion.
• Use Outlook for project management using Category management.
• Create a new personal or kids’ calendar that isn’t shared.
• Capture an email as a calendar item without copying.
• Block time on your Calendar for Tasks from your TaskPad.
• Display Contacts by category and mail to an entire category.
• Display Contact history (meetings, phone calls, conversations, etc.)
• Create a library with links to documents from a Contact.
